Behind the scenes of filming the Case Study with OTP Bank Romania

This is a “behind the scenes” article about how OTP Bank Romania implemented Tableau Software in their entire organization – a success story for both sides: OTP Bank Romania, as well as for btProvider. Back in April this year, our team of Data Specialists took the initiative to share with the world the successful ongoing collaboration with OTP Bank Romania, one of our current customers.

OTP Bank Romania started the process of digital transformation in 2018, and the main purpose was to improve the customer experience, to become more efficient internally and to increase their customer – employees interaction.

During the pandemic, OTP Bank Romania took several measures to improve their activity, as:

opening new branches

helping the hospitality industry through grants

POS actualizations

banking services digitalization

A top-notch technology that gave full speed to OTP’s digital transformation was the implementation of Tableau Software – the world’s leading self-service visual analytics platform. In the beginning, Tableau may look like a challenge to understand and implement, but after several demo sessions with our specialists, any customer we have today is confident to truly use Tableau as a data visualisation tool to leverage the big amount of data in the company.

Tableau helps people see and understand data, as it transforms the way people are using data to solve problems and make decisions every single day. With Tableau, any business team can use visual analytics to ask additional questions and fully explore the data, instead of merely crunching the numbers.

The same happened to OTP Bank Romania. They discovered the wonders that data visualisation can make to generate new revenue, to understand the data and to lead the business having the data as a right hand in the decision-making process.

Read the whitepaper about the challenges and solutions before and after implementing Tableau in OTP Bank Romania. 

… and we wanted to tell the story of how we implemented Tableau for OTP Bank Romania in a whitepaper (you can access it in the link above), and in a full video story.

What it was like to film the customer success story? 

Challenging… 🙂 6 people from OTP Bank Romania and 2 people from btProvider participated in the filming. Also, behind the scenes, we had the marketing specialists from both companies and the filming crew. We gathered in one glorious morning at the OTP Bank headquarters in Bucharest to give life to our initiative.
